MD – Savage Skullkickers Launch Party

svgsklkrJim Zub and Edwin Huang appear at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

We’re huge fans of SKULLKICKERS here at Third Eye, and are totally stoked for this great opportunity for many of you guys to discover this series for the first time with SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1.

We’re hosting a special launch party with SKULLKICKERS writer JIM ZUB and artist EDWIN HUANG to kick off this great jumping on point for new readers.

Haven’t read SKULLKICKERS? This series is an incredible piece of work; a must for both comics fans and gamers, as it blends the kind of bloody humor you’d see in ARMY OF DARKNESS or EVIL DEAD with the fantasy genre settings of A GAME OF THRONES, THE HOBBIT or WORLD OF WARCRAFT.

Ever wanted a Dungeons & Dragons-style comic that kicked ass on all fronts? Story, art, and more? SKULLKICKERS is that book.

Picture the best of buddie comedies like THE HANGOVER and cross it with the world of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, and that sums up SKULLKICKERS perfectly.

Wanna try the earlier SKULLKICKERS material before our signing? We’ve got the trade paperbacks in stock now, and you can give it a shot with volume 1 for only $9.99!

In addition to this exciting opportunity to meet the creators of one of our favorite gaming-inspired comics, we’re also hosting the first ever INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY!

As part of the Geek & Sundry video blog TABLETOP w/ WIL WHEATON, FELICIA DAY and more, we’ll be doing a very cool event with our guests JIM ZUB & EDWIN HUANG.

You can look forward to the following activities:

FREE TableTop related items!
A demo of MUNCHKIN SKULLKICKERS with the Skullkickers creators!
Special deals on ALL gaming-related items.
Being featured on the event which will be LIVESTREAMED to the Geek & Sundry webchannel!

MA – Skullkickers Signing

Skullkickers Creators Appear at Larry’s Comic Show

Press Release:

Red-hot Image comics’ Skullkickers creators Jim Zubkavich and Edwin Huang are the special guests at this month’s Woburn Comic Book Show, and they’re looking for artwork from a New England fan to publish in their book!

Zubkavich and Huang will be the guests on Saturday, December 18th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Best Western Hotel in Woburn.  Admission to the show is free!  The show is sponsored by Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics in Lowell and features dozens of local comic book dealers and distributors.

Besides signing autographs and chatting it up with fellow comic fans, Zubkavich and Huang will be looking for a piece of pin-up art featuring his characters to spotlight in issue 5 of his ongoing Image comic.

So would-be artists, this is your chance at the big time.  Bring along your artwork for Zubkavich and Huang to pore over, and if your offering kicks skulls, you could see your piece making it into the pages of one of the hottest titles on the comic racks these days!

Skullkickers has been described by some as The Hangover meets Dungeons & Dragons, and has already met with critical praise, selling out its first issue with ease.

Straight from Zubkavich’s website, Skullkickers is a fantasy-comedy comic series featuring two mercenaries entangled in a high-class assassination plot, and nothing – not werewolves, skeletons or black magic – will stop them from getting paid.

If you love fantasy, action-comedy, a touch of black-hearted violence and movies like Army of Darkness, then Skullkickers is the book for you!

RSVP on Facebook!

Directions to the show:

Best Western New Englander

1 RAININ RD, WOBURN, MA right off rt 93 S toward Boston

Take exit 36 to merge onto Montvale Ave toward Woburn
